Hilton Schilder’s Catheter Symphony is a jazzy journey through the mother city and the hyper creative mind of pianist and composer Hilton Schilder. We get a musicians eye view of what it was like growing up in the Cape Flats under apartheid, and an intimate glimpse into Schilder’s current struggle with cancer. Hospital bed compositions and irreverent humour help this colourful and quintessentially Capetonian artist get through the hard times.
